    Detachble scope rings

    When I got my Warne rings the guy showed me some detachable warne rings that I said no thanks cause I thought they wouldnt hold zero.

    So I guess my question is was I right? do they hold zero or nah?

    I had some on a Sako and they seemed to hold zero OK.

    I have a couple of sets of inch and 30mm quick detatch Weavers to suit different scopes on the same rifle, no dramas with re zero, bang on straight away.

    Depends on what you call zero. Some people are happy with a couple of inches at 100.

    Anyway unless you have a particular reason for having detachable scope mounts they just add another thing to go wrong into the rifle-scope-mount system

    Perfect reliability on my .30-06 ZG47 and ... I do mean perfect. Consistent practice when fitting and decent bases (not a problem with a Brno) and you should be OK, provided that the scope has the same tube diameter either side of the adjustment turrets and was carefully installed in the rings in the first place. In other words, most problems with QD systems have more to do with the original installation than the concept itself.
